    Catalogue cover

    Walking across the harvest moon is the tenth annual installment of artmix, a local artist residency and cooperation between the Luxemburgish Annexes Bourglinster and German Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken galleries. This year, Walking across the harvest moon starts at Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken and will be on display at Saarländische Galerie in Berlin, as well.

    The catalogue (and the exhibition poster, printed on its backside) uses Nordvest by Nina Stössinger and Forma DJR by David Jonathan Ross, but never side-by-side. The catalogue is printed in four spot colors that are added perpetually as more people were involved in the creation of a shown artwork. Color usage translates, so to say, directly into the amount of collaboration. Color Library, a research project at ECAL, was of great help to generate the color separations.
    The exhibition poster is printed in copper only and resembles mid-century, NASA-era designs, but with a vegetable (agrarian even) twist.
